Leeds Community Foundation is delighted to be running the Winter Wellbeing Community Grants Scheme, with generous support from Leeds City Council Public Health. The fund will support a range of community-based projects that target helping vulnerable people in Leeds who are most susceptible to the adverse effects of cold weather. This includes households with young children and pregnant women as well as people with a range of health problems, on low income or aged over 65 (see Guidance Flyer below for full information).
We are looking for innovative ideas that identify and support vulnerable people to prepare for and respond to cold weather. We are particularly keen for projects to address social isolation, increase resilience and that help reduce the levels of illness (and deaths) due to vulnerable people living in cold housing. We prefer to fund practical projects that provide real, tangible help as opposed to purely the onward distribution of information. The fund is particularly interested in new approaches which diversify the support available and projects are expected to link with and actively refer to other services.
